Having a life…

As a follow-up to my last message, here is what you get if you send me an email in the next three weeks:

Congratulations, you have reached my Inbox!


However, your message will most likely never be read.


I’m off to the Alps and Tuscany for 3 weeks of Family, Reading, Swimming, Hiking, Eating & Drinking…


When I return on 20 August, I will archive all the messages that arrived in my absence, and start with a clean, empty Inbox 😉


If you send me your message again after that time, I will be delighted to read your undoubtedly extremely interesting and terribly important message then.


Apologies if this is inconvenient, but I’m sure you appreciate the need for a Life too.


You can always send your message to, if you

think my team may be of help…


Or you could take some time off for yourself too 😉

I’ve loaded the car with a few clothes, and more books and dvd’s than we can read in a year. Tomorrow, I’ll add G., the kids and the dogs. We’ll be all set then…

    Enjoy your vacations Erik (I will, however, write you an email just to receive this great auto responder…)

    Enjoy the profound joy of time with your family and yourself my friend! Let’s talk when you get back.

    Nice experiment. How did it work out? Didn’t you receive a lot of mail once you started working again?

      Worked well. Got quite a few reactions, all positive – but one 😉 And three or four folks will use a similar message from now on.

      And then, upon my return, I got a few messages each day of people re-sending what they had sent me while I was away. Wonder whether that means that only a few messages a day are worth my attention anyway 🙂 …
